friend, and i like him a lot, but if he's asking us to ar understanding of the due process of law that has established us as a unique light among the darkness in this world, then i have to think through that very carefully. yes, i want to be able to question these guys. no, i don't want them to get all lawyered-up. but at the same time we're a country of laws. i do want our country to acknowledge terrorism when it's obvious terrorism. for example, i want us to say, fort hood, that was terrorism. little rock, the shooting of the soldier outside the recruiting office, let's be honest, let's say that's terrorism. the question is, do we suspend the normal due processes of law, whether it's to these guys, or to you or to me, and to designate somebody as an enemy combatant? that's a tougher one. in fact, it's tough enough that probably the smart thing to do is to bring judge andrew napolitano on board. i know he's got his view of senator lindsey graham's comments. i welcome judge napolitano, senior judicial analyst for fox news. judge, do we designate this guy enemy combatant or treat h
quickly walk away from it, what is not normal. that we only have so many law enforcement people. we have a guy in times where the waterway and there may be a normal explanation for it. i get on the metra system and by putting my earphones and a listen to my music or whatever when that is probably not a very smart thing, particularly for a guy like me to do. but it is just being aware -- you know, it is so easy. when i went to vietnam ever went said, stay alert, stay alive. i think people will be a little bit more alert right now, but just look for things that are out of place. is an author.t is ned zsa,ler republican. 'd think throrism comes at all different forms and different faces, not just literally, but metaphorically, too. you cannot say that it is not political or that it is. it is hard to label active terrorism -- acts of terrorism sometimes providing it is up to with identifying terrorism. we sometimes let our guard down and i feel like we do not know when the time is to act. when something should be under suspicion. we wait for something to happen. tough one. is a you are
with our government's top national security priority, which is the lawful effective and humane interrogation of this subject for the purposes of gathering intelligence. the boston attacks were clearly inspired by the violent ideology of transnationallist islamist terrorism. so we need to learn everything we can about what foreign terrorists or terrorist groups the suspect and his brother might have associated with, whether they were part of additional plots to attack our nation, and what other relevant information the suspect may possess that could prevent future attacks against the united states or our interests. i think we need to delve further into this whole issue of the education that some people who are motivated by these base ideologies obtain over the internet and the effect that it's having. we should at least know about that. our civilian justice system offers a responsible option for striking this balance with american citizens. it allows the justice department to delay reading a suspect his miranda rights if doing so is in the interest of -- quote -- "public safety.
not answer the door unless the people at the door can clearly identify themselves as law enforcement officials. this mayhem unfolded overnight starting with a shooting on the campus of the massachusetts institute of technology in cambridge. that's one mile from where we are standing right now at the scene of the boston marathon attack. >> an officer who was killed on the campus of m.i.t. was killed a short time later, a carjacking took place and a police chase took place after that with reports of explosives involved. during the chase, the transportation authority officer was wounded in a shoot-out and suspect number one was critically wounded and later died at the hospital. we expect a press conference in 15 minutes at the hospital. >> we have drew griffin with us right now on the streets of watertown, massachusetts. again, this is the area right now which is a very active crime scene where people are being told not to leave their houses where it is believed that suspect number two, the man involved in the boston marathon bombings and the man involved in this car chase and manhunt,

more questions than answers ton. joining me now to explain what is next for law enforcement officials, former l.a. pd detective mark furman is with us. mark, we don't know who or why, but when i heard there were two debt nations after we had the one, and one and then another one 14 seconds later, then the police found two other explosive devices and maybe as many as five others, as the wall street journal says. we haven't confirmed that yet. this seems to fit a pattern of a group. where does your mind go as a detective? >> first, it's terrorism regardless if it's domestic terrorism with a middle east ideology or connection even in spirit and not physically. you know, you look at in, sean, luckily we have electronic surveillance. >> visual equipment almost this everybody's hand. that will be a huge tool in this investigation. the bombs are going to be a huge tool. but they make bombs a certain way in the middle east and they teach their bomb makers to make them in a certain way and these are certainly anti-personnel bombs. they are not intended for vehicles or buildings. these are anti
, a neighbor, who quickly alerted law enforcement. at 8:40 eastern, applause on the scene as we heard moments ago. and moments later, this tweet from the boston police department, "suspect in custody. officers sweeping the area. stand by for further info. "president obama will speak a minute or so from now. the suspect is taken alive, now in the hospital in serious condition. the exact meaning of that unclear. let's go to jessica yellin who is standing by at the white house. jessica? >> reporter: anderson, this is an opportunity for the president to come out here and cheer on boston. thank the police there, honor the victims, and remind the nation that america doesn't stop for terrorism. president obama watched all of this unfold and the capture go down live on television in the white house as the rest of the nation did. as soon as he learned that the capture was happening, he went across the coloinated, over to the oval office and sat there with staff where he got a call from fbi director muller who officially notified him that it was true, the suspect was captured alive. then the president
only be tried in federal court. he's never eligible for military commissions. a first year law student could convict this person. what i'm worried about is what does he know about future attacks? he's telling us that his brother was the bad guy, he's sort of just along for the ride. they had no international connections. guess what, he's down-playing his involvement. what i am suggesting is that we use the national security legal system where we can interview him without a lawyer to gather intelligence to prevent a future attack, rather than having to negotiate through his lawyer to get any information. jenna: but, if i could, senator, there seems to be a lot of discrepancy about some of the information come being out about this investigation. >> right. jenna: we've all seen it, you know, played out on the news and otherwise. i would like to drill down a little bit into an even change you just had about the boston terror attacks with the s*epbg o secretary of home land security january elt napolitano. we showed an older brother, this tkhaou owe, that is secretary napolitano. we just sh

, president obama praising law enforcement in trackinging down the suspect, late last night after authorities announced they captured their man, this is what the president had to say. >> boston police and state police and local police across the come mop wealth of massachusetts responded with professionalism and bravery over five long days and tonight, because of their determined efforts, we have closed an important chapter in this tragedy. >> nbc's kristen welker at the white house for us. what's happening at the white house today? >> no events on the president's schedule but i can tell you behind the scenes, i have been told by administration officials, the president will be in contact with his national security team when necessary to monitor the ongoing developments in this investigation. you remember when president obama spoke last night, craig, he said there are a number of questions that need to be anticipated, included what motivated these two young men to take these hape noeinous action and of course did they have accomplices? that is the question everybody wants answered now. i don't
, anderson. talking to law enforcement officials this morning, there's two steps. first the question, of course, is, what exactly the suspect is telling law enforcement authorities? the second and related question is, how much of what the suspect is telling law enforcement authorities do they in fact believe, what's verifiable, what they can check out, or what he may be saying because, quite frankly, his brother, the alleged co-conspirator in all of this, is not available because he was killed, you know, on friday. so, there's a lot for the law enforcement officials to do. and we just have to differentiate between what they believe the suspect is telling them and what they believe they can verify and what might be the truth, anderson. >> also lawmakers want to talk to the fbi about their treatment of the older brother, tamerlan tsarnaev, about their interviews with him before he went to russia and any follow-up that they did or did not do, correct? >> yeah. and there's a whole list of questions there, of course, policymakers are asking and we're trying to get to the bottom of what re
will be placed on the record for those who stood up for sensible gun safety laws in america. i think jo put it well. the parents who have come here and the family members -- i think joe put it well. the parent to have come here in the family members, we need to find a political courage with the disappointment in this vote today. this is not the end. there is more that we can do and will do. reaching out to convince members who voted the other way today and perhaps in the next election to challenge them. bring the issue forward to the american people. this is worth the fight. we have got to stand up to bring sensible gun safety to america. god forbid what tomorrow's victims will be, but we know they will be there. we have to do everything we can to spare another family from this agree. thank you. let me salute all of my andeagues, particularly joe the families who have lit a candle. that is a hard, hard thing to do when you go through what they went through. you do not want to get out of bed, let alone come here and argue truth to power, which you have done. it will not be forgotten. it will

in boston as an scuse because our law toughens i think things up. >> the senate bill would have multiple background chengs and make sure anyone over-staying a visa would be detected. right now, there is no check on airport departures. as for those who came without visas, lindsay graham says this. >> now is the time to bring all the 11 million out of the shadows and find out who they are. most of them are here to work. but wree may find some terrorists in our midst who, have been hiding in the shadows, when it comes to the entry/exit. the 19 hijackers were all student who is overstayed their visas and the system didn't capture that. >> the senate holds the second two of hearings on immigration reform tomorrow. >> it will be very interesting. an emotional ballgame in beston last night, after a week of terror. >> shannon: a yesterday's home game was made more special by neil diamond, who made it there on the red-eye. members of law enforcement, first responders and marathon participants were also honored. david ortiz had a passionate rally cry. >> it doesn't say red sox, it says boston... w
it with a constitutional law attorney and former deputy assistant attorney general under president bush. he joins us now. i wasn't even aware this could be done in national security cases. tell us about how it works. >> sure. it's a rare exception. basically what it does is it allows law enforcement to delay issuing a suspect his miranda rights for a limited period to enable law enforcement to get information that would be relevant to public safety. for example, in this case one of the things we want to ask this guy is: is there another attack that might be imminent? who are you working with? are you part of a larger network? questions aimed at making sure public safety is protected, making sure we get any information that is time sensitive right now before he lawyers up and doesn't want to talk with us anymore. >>alisyn: we know that is vitally important because apparently the suspect planted other pipe bombs or explosives, at least, along the chase route. so they somehow knew that when they were trying to get away they had even, you know, planted other things to try to hurt and inflict more harm. so thi
. >> there is a massive manhunt under way. a lot of law enforcement involved in that. to assist that we have suspended all service on the m.b.t.a., our public transit service, and this will continue until we think it's safe to open all or some of that. we're asking people to shelter in place-- in other words to stay indoors with their doors locked and not to open the door for anyone other than a properly identified law enforcement officer. and that applies here in watertown where we are right now. id walham, newton, belmont and, at this point, all of boston. all of boston. this is a serious situation. we're taking it seriously. we're asking the public to take it seriously as well and to assist law enforcement by following these simple instructions. we've got every asset that we can possibly muster on the ground right now. they are doing a terrific job and working in concert with each other but we are going to need the public to help us help them stay safe. >> reporter: in washington, the president convened a briefing in the white house situation room with almost a dozen top aides. the search focused on w
here and -- malls here and starting to bring in massive amounts of law enforcement, 1,000, maybe 1500 people there and 200 or 300 reporters. a lot of trucks settling. and then it started to getting to a drone. we kept on delays in press conferences and then you couldn't ask questions. they would just read statements. they had the governor there, the mayor there and the head of the police department and the state police. then they told us to go away. >> suarez: we have a half minute left. was there a sense as it was reaching the final moment that's a corner had been turned, that this was almost over? >> yes. after they lifted the lockdown order all of a sudden they have these shots and they seemed to absolutely have found him. and now they do and the cheers went up and now it's over. >> suarez: bruce, just a short time ago it's been confirmed three other people were taken into custody in new bedford not far from where dzhokar tsarnaev attends college at a branch of university massachusetts system. do we know about that? >> i don't. if you put pieces of the puzzle they told us they were
for that video to be submitted to law-enforcement. that was a very effective member -- and effective method. morning's "wall street journal," -- you say no? guest: the identification was fairly quick and effective. there were numerous sources online. enforcement tow quickly anidentify the suspects. -- butoston best investigators you did -- boston investigators used a video from various sources. in the fourth amendment it hinges on the idea you have kept reasonable expectation of privacy. do you have a reasonable expectation of privacy when you are walking on a public street? a tricky question. oftentimes it comes down to this question. you do not have an expectation of privacy in a public street. but you also did not have the expectation that everything you say and do is going to be recorded, that that recording is going to be retained indefinitely, perhaps catalogued in a database in the federal government. he did not have the expectation that every one of your conference stations are going to be recorded in kept forever. this is a tricky and thorny question that comes up with the surveill
-qaeda. any indication from your law enforcement sources that they have any suspicions at this point? >> what i hear at this point in time is they can't rule anything out. it's way too early in the game. they have to look at this device, they have to look at how it is built, they have to look at how devices over in the middle east were built and have been utilized. and pressure cooker bombs have been used in the middle east,@% especially pakistan. they know that. but they also, as i said, it's a very common bomb, if you will. so they have to look at everything. as one person said to me, what was the message of the bomber? what were they trying to say? it's very hard to rule out for anybody at this point in time, the date. it was tax day, it was four or five days before the anniversary of waco. it was patriots day in boston and this was a celebration that was honoring the newtown victims. there's a lot of american, if you will, symbolism around all the elements of the bombing that all the investigators are looking at right now. they start with the forensics, they start with the components and
the suspect is. i mean, no shortage of police here. it's incredible the amount of law enforcement presence that is here to watch this, what appears to be final act play out. >> yeah. that's right. it's incredible because we are outside the perimeter that was searched all day long. i mean those 20 blocks in watertown and cambridge that he we were telling you about all day long. that was over this direction. but this is over here. so, if he was here all day he was outside the perimeter where the police have been searching for him all day long. i find that really interesting. right after the 5:30 press conference that where the state police said well we didn't get him, we're going to start pulling things back, almost immediately, i'm talking like within half an hour, we hear the gunfire and then everything starts erupting over here in this direction. now, we did have a camerthat we moment that those explosions were going off, and we hope to be able to turn that around for you fairly quickly. we had to move our live truck. we had to move all kinds of things, folks so please bear with us. we ar
they carjacked. there were dozens upon dozens of law enforcement officials exchanging gunfire with him. apparently they got out of the suv, then back into it, his brother was shot, wounded, almost killed, then they sort of drove -- he drove that suv himself away from there. and then fled on foot. but the question remains, how is somebody who is a 19-year-old kid, with no formal military training, who obviously was wounded, from what we know that he's here at the hospital, how he's able to evade capture for that long. apparently he used the cover of nightfall to find that boat, get underneath that tarp, and just sat there, and it was very, very close to where that incident had occurred. just a matter of blocks. in fact, our own kerry sanders yesterday had been in that vicinity for the duration of the day, and we knew this was starting to happen when kerry sanders goes we just heard gunshots. we just heard gunshots, folks moving a few blocks up. quite remarkable that he was able to evade capture, wounded, with no formal military training. that's certainly a question a lot of people are g
in the nation legally, dzhokhar's older brother, tamerlan who was killed friday morning was a lawful permanent resident, one of the two told a carjacking victim thursday night they were the boston marathon bombers, a search of dzhokhar's umass dartmouth dorm room turned up a hat and jacket corne jack y suspect number 2. tsarnaev remains hospitalized at beth israel hospital with gunshot wounds to his head, neck, legs and hands, authorities believe one was sev-inflicted in -- self-inflectioned in a botched suicide attempt. >> canadian authorities announcing in connection with fbi they have broken up a terrorist plot to blow up a passenger train and bridge somewhere between toronto and u.s. border. a ballot they believe had ties to al qaeda overseas. >> the individuals were receiving support from al qaeda elements located in iran, i can tell you, this there is no information to indicate that these attacks were state sponsored. lou: the royal mounted canadian police stressing at no point during the invest visio investie public in danger. lou: we bin with the investigation of boston marathon bombin
for many here, in fact, the hospital still has a number of law enforcement behind me right now, there's four by my count. every single entrance and exit, every single way you can get in or out any of the hospital buildings here, this is a large campus, beth israel, has thofrmts also inside the hospitals as well. we're told that on the floor where the suspect is located, there's also a law enforcement as well as near his room. that, of course, will be the case until he's taken into more of a custody once he's had recovery. they want to have that investigative purpose go forward, have the opportunity to interview him. number one priority at this hour is to ensure that he survives so they will have that chance hopefully to get an interview with him. we do know at least one injury was suffered during that initial shootout that happened when his brother was killed. but he may have actually had both injuries. we don't know exactly, one of them for sure was back at that point. again, at this hour, we remains in serious condition behind me in the hospital. there is security all around beth is
of actions violate u.s. laws and international treaty obligations. this conclusion is not based upon our own personal impressions, but rather, is grounded in a hoe row and detailed examination of what constitutes torture from a historical and legal context. we looked at court cases and determined that the treatment of detainees in many instances met the standards. the courts have determined constitute torture. in addition, you look at the united states state department, in its annual country reports on human rights practices, has characterized many of the techniques used against detainees in u.s. custody in the post-9/11 environment, the state department has characterized the same treatment as torture, abuse, or cruel treatment when those techniques were employed by foreign governments. the c.i.a. recognized this in an internal review and that many of the interrogation techniques it employed were inconsistent with policy, positions the united states has taken regarding human rights. the united states is understandably subject to criticism when it criticized another nation for engaging in tor
that wasn't anxiety amongst law enforcement. there was a second wave, which was approximately 15 to 20 cop cars of various, you know, agencies, tear out of there. that's when i jumped in my car to move and realized there was something bigger goingomp i drove by the gas station that was allegedly robbed by the two suspects and then i arrived on the scene in watertown, where residents said 10 or 15 minutes before i got there, they heard one or two explosions and a large number of gunfire -- i described the gun-- i asked them to describe the gunfire and they said. >> that's what mike tobin was talking about, the different weapons. he was hearing grenades, dynamite, ieds, you name it, it sounds like, the suspects were armed for a lot more than just a robbery? >> reporter: that would certainly be the case. vehicle -- having been in these situations and 10 years ago, you can find of feel a little bit of the sentiment of the law enforcement agencies. this is one that they were absolutely taking seriously. there was a lot of adrenalin flowing and obviously, with the suspects sort of surprising the
was hiding in and surrendered to authorities after about 25 minutes of negotiations with law enforcement. that's according to an official with knowledge of how he was taken into custody. we did know that authorities were having some type of dialogue with the suspect as he lay in that boat. we didn't know precisely how long it lasted, wolf. >> if the charges, joe, are actually filed today in the coming hour or two or three, will the justice department just make an announcement? will there be a news conference? do we have any indication how they're going to let the american public know that charges have been filed? >> we have been told that there's potential for a news conference, that is, of course, if the authorities go ahead and file those charges. it's not necessary for the suspect to actually be presented before a judge today, though these are extraordinary circumstances, and they could come up with any number of other provisions. so we'll have to wait and see. and that's what law enforcement authorities are telling us, wolf. >> and these are federal charges, joe, so the attorney gene
. we are flying without instruments and visibility is very poor. however, according to law enforcement on friday morning as we prepare this program, the suspects her brother. the 19-year-old and a 20 six road. they reportedly came from a region near chechnya. the 19-year-old, dzhokhar tsarnaev, lived in cambridge. he had a scholarship toward college a couple of years ago. his brother, tamerlan tsarnaev, died after a firefight with police friday morning. he was worn in russia and became a legal resident in 2007. the prayer -- the brothers are believed to have entered the country 10 years ago. the associated press spoke to the father. he said i son is an angel. he said he is an intelligent boy. confirms the worst fears of those responsible for national security. there are enemies among us. >> i agree. a moreard to imagine more american place to hit in this vicious and cowardly act. i think the political implications of it are immediate. there will be a great resistance to immigration reform. i think it is a blow there. beyond that, it is a reminder that since september 11, there has not
is in custody. >> megyn: bill hemmer, thank you, friend. see you soon. law enforcement now pouring over images from the scene and you heard bill how they're asking anyone who was there to send them pictures. what you're about to see a one example of what authorities are looking at. you will he see a man cross the finish line and kiss his children and then you'll hear the first explosion and 12 seconds or so later you will hear the second blast. listen here. >> great job!. [explosion] >> we now know that three people were killed and just under 200 people were injured in those moments. the authorities will also be looking at this video where moments after the explosion, look, you see two large pieces more than two, but those two we highlighted for you, metal flying, we've spot-shadowed them here and pieces of evidence that they'll use to determine who may be behind the terrible event. coming up later in the show we're going through the video with one of the world's foremost explosives experts who has worked on nearly every major terror investigation in recent memory, including the 1983 bombing
. we couldn't find my mother-in-law. >> is she okay? >> she's okay. she feels really guilty that she put us through this which is a crazy reaction. don't feel guilty. >> did you locate your wife? >> i did. it's crazy to think she was a few blocks down. on a day that normally is nothing but positive and joyous something positive could occur. >> you ran the race. you were on your way back to the finish line area to plemeet up h a friend. >> i was. i continued to walk and picked up my water bottle and i decided to go back toward the finish to find my friend who was a couple of minutes behind me. i got within a block and then i saw an explosion of white smoke and the loudest noise i've ever heard in my life. even though i was almost a block away the concussion from that was just stunning. it's disorienting. >> did you know it was a bomb or maybe something accidentally? >> no. it was louder than a cannon or anything. after the second blast it was pretty clear. >> did anything seem suspicious. >> no. >> they weren't even letting a pregnant person through. i just wanted to get through. ther
. pipe bombs, all the ingredients to build more bombs. i guess the suspicion is this is what law enforcement authorities have told me over the past few days. these two brothers if they would have gotten away with it, they were going to do more of this down the road. >> i think you're absolutely right, wolf. it was actually another side to that coin. either they were going to do more and that's what the other explosives were for, or perhaps when we are aware now there was a third pressure cooker bomb. was there in fact a third perpetrator who was supposed to join them on the day of the boston marathon? was that bomb built for that person to put in place at the same time? while we optimistically are hopeful we have accounted for everybody who departed this attack on the marathon, we can't yet rule it out. those other explosives could have other explanations, other perpetrators or other attacks. >> i'm going to bring tom fuentes into the conversation in a moment. where did they get the explosives, where did they pay for the explosives, questions we're going to continue to explore as
on the screen side by side that law enforcement is now asking anyone in the public who may know these men to come forward with information. a tipline and email is set up on our screen. the fbi says these two men are considered armed and extremely dangerous. so as an international manhunt is now underway, what could be going on behind the scenes? here with analysis two prosecutors. first of all, i don't like the fact that at this hour they're looking for the public's help. on the other hand, they might get it. >> i mean, i think none of us don't like the fact we don't have these two in custody. we don't know why, because we want to prevent any more catastrophes than we've already had with this incredible tragedy. a lot of us are playing a guessing game, because law enforcement doesn't want us to know any more than we have to so they can put the case together and figure out the why. however it does seem that the fact that they have put this out to us means they felt they needed to, because certainly they don't want to give us more, because they can do a better job when there aren't people p
's boston division. since monday's bombings, the fbi and our law enforcement partners have been working around the clock, and are fully committing to investigating this matter to bring those responsible to justice. our collective law enforcement team has pursued thousands of leads and tips. as i said two days ago, we are working methodically and with a sense of urgency to identify those responsible for the bombings. within the last day or so, through that careful process, we initially developed a single person of interest. not knowing that the individual was acting alone or in concert with others, we obviously worked with extreme purpose to make that determination. the entire force of the federal government, the fbi in boston, around the world, as well as our partners in the boston police, atf, massachusetts state police and more than 30 agencies of the boston joint terrorism task force have set about to ensure that all responsible for the bombings will be brought to justice. more importantly, it was done to ensure the future safety of the city of boston, the commonwealth of massachuset

is the federal law version of what a bomb is, if death results, then that is a capital offense. the government could seek the death penalty. massachusetts is a state that does not have the death penalty. so the only death-eligible charge here would be the federal offense, even though four people were killed, the government alleges, the three victims of the. bog and the campus policeman. >> okay. in terms of the investigation, where does that stand now? what are the most prom neinent angles that are being pursued? >> these main questions are really the ones that have been true ever since the discovery of who these two people were. and the directions that they're headed in are really going to be the same here for weeks. so the investigation is not going to be, you know, taking sudden turns. the main questions are how and where did they assemble the components of the bomb. how did they buy them? where did they build them? were there any practices? secondly, what happened when the brother, tamerlan, the older brother who was shot to death thursday night, what happened when he went to russia last y

that sort of final fall on to the ground and that's where law enforcement sources basically handcuffed him and put him in the ambulance that took him to the hospital. so he is communicating with them, he is allowed to nod. he is just allowed to nod to investigators when they're asking him questions. they're waiting for him to increasingly become more aware and get out of that sedation so that they can talk to him at greater lengths, anderson. >> and, don lemon, you've got information about who's questioning the suspect. >> yeah, i certainly do. to add to what debra said who's questioning the suspect, it's a group called the high value detainee interrogation group. and this group was established seven or eight years ago it was after the capture of saddam hussein and the interrogation of saddam hussein. and what homeland security realized then is they needed one specific group with global knowledge of terrorism, international knowledge of terrorism, to go in to question these high-value detainees rather than a local person who has knowledge of the local area, local municipalities but didn't
